Oilfield Outkasts-Bay/Wade Fishing

This 2013 Haynie Cat is a very stable platform and can fish 4 customers very comfortably. We will fish all the inshore waters from West Galveston Bay to Port O’Conner. The boat will run 35 kts with its 225hp Mercury and has iPilot installed on the trolling motor.
Our bay/wade fishing captains are some of the best on the coast and will fill multiple limits on multiple species when the fish are cooperating.
We also offer a very affordable dolphin tour in the harbor. These trips are great for families or those on a romantic vacation!

Member since May 2016
I was laid off in May 2016 from the oilfield and at the same time, my son was also diagnosed with cancer. I immediately had to find an alternative resource for my family to survive. I had "Revelry" (my 27' Catamaran) since 2012, and figured that I must sell her to make ends meet until I found another job. My wife told me that I should put the boat to work with my love of fishing. I had met Captain Scott at a networking mixer in the Woodlands while we both still worked in the oilfield. He had his Captain's license so we talked about chartering the boat, although, at the time I didn’t really care much for the idea because I didn't want to lose my love of fishing. However, it didn't take long after my wife convinced me to get to work. The first 5 months of 2016 we fished over 1,000 customers. We have since added 4 more boats to our fleet. I am a USCG and Texas State licensed guide, a certified Weighmaster (IGFA and state record certification), and Texas Director of Saltwater Tournament.
